The world can be a dangerous place. And while personal security is a fundamental human need, it is ultimately a personal responsibility. In the moment of truth, the “lifeguards” of society simply won’t be there to protect us - whether from street crime or the potential of mass homicide. We are, in effect, on our own.

Yet violence is never random. Even the most desperate predator is careful in selecting his victims. And “bad guys” of all types – from the street criminal to the workplace shooter always follow a predictable continuum of behavior the elements of which can be identified—in advance—by easily spotted “indicators”—if you know what to look for.

This training teaches participants how to recognize when they might be in danger, avoid and deter threats directed towards them, and how to decisively respond if avoidance fails.

During this session, presented jointly with the Pittsburgh Society of Association Executives, you will learn:

  • How to recognize warning signs of potentially violent individuals
  • What to do if you think you are being targeted
  • What to do in an Active Shooting Situation
